Bermuda has mastered the art of combining dramatic island landscapes with a prosperous economic center. While although we are best known for our Shorts and the Triangle, you may be surprised to find out that the World Bank has constantly rated Bermuda in the top 5 richest countries in the world! Our sparkling jewel in the middle of the Atlantic is within 700 miles off the East coast of the United States, boasting subtropical weather, fauna, flora, clear waters and pink sand. Think about it, in as much time as it takes to watch the season finale of American Idol, you can travel to Bermuda and immerse yourself in a culture steeped in British politeness and Caribbean flare. Our smiles are infectious, and if you are not careful, you will return home talking with the soft Caribbean accent sharpened by an English twang.
PAY TO PLAY
Our official currency is the Bermuda Dollar, which is on par to the US Dollar and used interchangeably throughout the island.
The Bermuda Carnival will be the official start of the summer! You can expect balmy temperatures between 73°F – 81° F and our waters will be warmed to about 77°F, perfect for the raft up on the 15th!
WHERE TO STAY WHILE YOU PLAY
